It seems if you click to a later point in the video, then replay the video, it usually gets back in synch.

Season 1, episode 19.
Original air date: 8 February 1952.
An unscrupulous free-lance writer extorts the elderly owner of a seedy second-hand shop who is prescient about the future.
Cast: William Redfield (Tom Carmichael) and Edgar Stehli (Peter Talley).
From IMDB.
Good idea and good interpretation. Big problems with the syncronisation of audio and video of this copy.

If you like Classic TV from of the 50's, I found a catalog site that makes it easy to find and watch episodes streaming from Archive.org at:

The Classic TV Channel

There are currently over 400 individual episodes of about 30 different programs, and the site is growing day by day. Check it out!

Interesting story, especially if you're familiar with the Twilight Zone version. Surprised to see familiar faces and the acting was well done. Thanks for the upload.

I meant Bob, not Roger... I had the name in my head, but at my age I can get things twisted around. Pardon me.

Thank you for reprimand.

Subject: Composer correction
Robert (Bob) COBERT did the music for Dark Shadows....NOT Roger Corman, who is a director and producer.

Great that this has the original commercials and such!
